About the Author

Tom Benjey and his wife and research assistant, Ann, share a Pennsylvania German limestone farmhouse with their cat, Ryan. The unspoiled feline allows them to live in his house as a reward for their efforts in restoring it for him. The accidental activists honed their research skills in a 3-year fight to protect their community from the proposed Monster Warehouses project that ended with an unconditional victory.

 

About the Book

William Henry "Lone Star" Dietz (1884-1964), the most colorful coach to grace a sideline, is as controversial 40 years after his death as he was in life. Artist, teacher, actor, writer, championship dog breeder and athlete -- teammate of Jim Thorpe on the legendary Carlisle Indian School football teams and protege of Glenn S. "Pop" Warner -- Dietz was truly a Renaissance man. Mostly forgotten for a half century were it not for the Redskins naming controversy, Lone Star's story deserves to be told--and it finally is.
